Jeanne Woodford, a former warden of San Quentin state prison, will speak about her statewide campaign to abolish the death penalty at 2 p.m. Saturday in the auditorium of the Redwoods senior community in Mill Valley.

Her talk is hosted by the Marin Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union and Mill Valley Seniors for Peace. An ACLU speaker also will speak briefly on the current state of civil liberties in the U.S.

In addition, the free event will include a young person speaking on the Marin ACLU's work in Marin's youth court. The Redwoods is at 40 Camino Alto.
